From the Museum of Ice Cream to Happy Place, not a month goes by where there isn’t a new one to check out. October is no exception.
This month, the immersive new exhibit Cheat Day Land will open its doors in the L.A. Arts District. For those of you who were lucky enough to visit MOIC, you’ll find the space deliciously familiar.
Unlike its predecessor, Cheat Day Land is dedicated to, you guessed it, cheat days. With rooms dedicated to everything from donuts and chocolate to burritos and cereal, there are no shortage of photo ops for your social media or things for the kids to climb on or jump in.
Check it out and go visit! https://cheatdayland.com
And Thank You to the people who made the photo shoot work so well. The incredible featured Estee Lauder MakeUp Artist Blanche LeBeau. And my assistant for the day who also shot much of the video, Shauna Toerner.

From my ad photo and video shoot for Cheat Day Land with kids and families all day. Here with the immensely popular and beautiful Russian actress, model and television host Anna Oris and her daughter Ameliya. Looking good riding a donut!

I think Shauna Toerner does naked and restless very well indeed. Her dilemma helped with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. An extra series on Fujifilm Instax instant film from our photo shoot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!

Most of you know me from my extensively published work in Bodybuilding and Fitness. I have photographed and done video with some of the most famous as well the up and comers. To say the least my favorites include the incredible Ava Cowan; featured in magazines, ads and on stage at the Olympia and Arnold.

This graph is one direct from Facebook showing the growth I have created for one client. The red line indicates where I took over the job. Before that it was relatively flat for at least a year or more with very lackluster postings.
As a photographer, I have for a long time now continued to build my own business with social media. Perhaps I have something like 15 years doing it. As well as having been involved in building content and social media for my photo clients. So it was only a matter of course that I have applied my abilities to create content of photos, videos and writing to build and manage social media for clients as a regular part of my business.
I am not some part time guy doing this on the side. Social Media, photography and video is what I do. If you might be interested in chatting about what I might do for you, please send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com. Happy to have the opportunity to just chat with you. Thanks!

Kind of funny that people expect that because I typically am not interested in doing gallery shows that my work is not seen. More people have seen my photography in a month than most will be seen in their entire lifetime.
From bodybuilding and fitness to fashion and now aviation, my photographs have been in ads and magazine features, major newspapers, motion pictures, news broadcasts, brochures and billboards around the world.
This one is among my latest, a full wall size backlit display for the Palm Springs Air Museum at the Palm Springs International Airport. A few million people in a year will see this one. Thanks!

Talking with Charles Glass last Sunday at the FitExpo about our ad shoot for Bodybuilding.com. A huge favorite for both of us that was in magazines and online for a couple of years.
Charles Glass, the most famous bodybuilding trainer in the world, alone in a gym training a dog. So much fun!
